The Stitzel-Weller Distillery is legendary in the Bourbon world. Julian "Pappy '' Van Winkle started it in 1935, and it has produced some of the most renowned Bourbons and brands. The distillery was shut down in 1992. However, the Weller brand continues to produce some of the most desirable Bourbons of the day, all of which come from the iconic Buffalo Trace Distillery's stills. W.l. Weller special reserve is also known as "The Original Wheated Bourbon." That's because it's made using corn, wheat, and barley mash bill. There isn't any rye at all. And that combination always results in a smoother Spirit with more toffee/caramel tones than spices. While giving it a 90 rating, Wine Enthusiast Magazine stated "Replacing the rye grain in our recipe with wheat provides for an exceptionally smooth taste. W. L. Weller is a truly outstanding buy." Other achievements are - 2020 Gold Medal - San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2019 Gold Medal - New York World Spirits Competition 2019 Silver Outstanding Medal - Whiskies of the World.

Weller Special Reserve is the entry-level bourbon in Buffalo Trace's well-known Weller wheated bourbon collection. Vanilla, caramel and honey fragrances rise gently from the glass. On the palate, the bourbon retains its richness, giving a delightful yet typical mix of honey, caramel, vanilla, and mild fruit. A smidgeon of oak completes the look. Spice is absent, owing to the wheated mash bill and low proof, yet this allows the sweet tastes to shine through. Aside from its generally soft delivery, the resulting experience is pleasant. Overall delicate, the finish gives the sip a well-rounded and quite delightful conclusion.
W.L Weller bourbon's milder flavor notes make it ideal for sipping or mixing drinks. Of course, you could use this in any cocktail you like, but we've observed that Weller Special Reserve works beautifully in Manhattans. The bitters assist to restore some of the missing rye flavors without overpowering the drink, and the sweeter notes pair well with the vermouth.
